OK, fair point, I will agree with, I suppose that if someone has any real proof baseball players can be expected to maintain their level of play with added travel time, I would be willing to consider it, I just don't buy the argument that "other sports can do it, so why can't baseball???" What is a tough road trip for the Hawks or Bulls? 8 games in 14 days? Guffaw.
